Event description
Birds & Bees is a workshop by AWARE that helps parents start and sustain important conversations with their children about sex.

About this Event

“What should I do if I catch my child watching porn?”

“How do I start talking about romantic relationships with my child?”

“How can I talk to my child about sex without making it sound like a lecture?

“How can I let my child know that I’m on his/her side and care about what he/she feels?

Most parents believe that it is important to talk to their children about sex, but many are unsure how to do it. Or, when to start having these conversations and about what. Where do children get answers to the questions they can’t ask their parents? The internet is one source, and young people themselves say they are most likely to ask peers and romantic partners. Wouldn’t you rather they turn towards you? The “ask-able” parent who is open to questions, ready to make an effort to listen without judgement and engage in a dialogue?

Who should attend:

Parents with children of all ages will benefit, although parents with tweens and teens are more likely to find the case studies and discussions in groups immediately relevant.

What the workshop will cover:

1. Communicating with your children

  • The importance of active listening
  • Tips on having constructive conversations

2. Consent

  • What is consent
  • The gold standard for consent
  • Consent in real life

3. Being an “ask-able” parent

  • Exploring own attitudes and value systems
  • Broaching awkward topics

4. Relationships

  • Signs of healthy and unhealthy relationships
  • Sexual Assault
  • Navigating the online world

Attend this workshop to explore how you can work on developing your own strategies to enhance the trust and bond with your child! Places are limited, so do sign up quickly!

Date: Tuesdays - 1, 8 & 15 December (Participants are expected to attend all three sessions)

Time: 8:00-9.30pm (1.5 hours)

Workshop Fee: $15 (in total, covering all three sessions)

Survey: After you sign up, you will be asked to complete a short pre-workshop survey about the age(s) and number of your children. This is very important so that parents with children of similar ages can be grouped together to that you will get the most out of the workshop.

Special instructions for online workshop: As small-group discussions are a big part of the workshop, participants are expected to switch on their video as well as audio whenever possible, and to join in the discussions for maximum benefit.

Refunds and cancellations: Unfortunately we will not be offering refunds. In exceptional circumstances, if you are unable to attend the subsequent sessions, you will be able to join the next set of workshops if you write in to publiceducation@aware.org.sg in advance giving your reasons.
